right out and said kind of ideologies that he they espouse, even imposing a tax on questions which have not been done in the middle east in hundreds of years, these things are rejected, he said. he talked about reaching out to the backbone of assad's remaining support. he said join us, did not fight us, and we are not fighting you. an open letter was written to the syrian christian community. i know it does have a big impact. this is a vision of respect for the dignity of all syrians, a vision of tolerance, coexistence. i think the vast majority assyrians really want to believe a debt of that vision. the extremist we talked about are a minority but at the violence goes on, those extremist voices are getting louder. >> with the remaining time i have left, thank you for the humanitarian work you're doing. obviously it is very important. if you could expand, you mentioned the efforts we are making to make sure those being held there recognizable america has played in providing that help. if you could just detail that a little bit i would appreciate it. >> we are examining on the case by ca
and workers from significant job loss by providing a point of order against a carbon tax or a fee on carbon emissions. energy intensive jobs are the first to go when your utility prices get uncompetitive. your ability to compete in the world marketplace, the price of american made goods, what families pay at the pump, what they pay for heating and cooli cooling, what they pay for every american product they make would be impacted by a carbon tax or fee. and i urge the support of this amendment. mrs. murray: mr. president if. the presiding officer: the senator from washington. mrs. murray: i yield one minute to the senator from rhode island. the presiding officer: the senator from rhode island. mr. whitehouse: mr. president, except for perhaps in congress and in the boardrooms of exxonmobil, it is no longer credible to deny what carbon pollution -- the presiding officer: the senate will come to order. mr. whitehouse: -- it is no longer credible to ignore what carbon pollution is doing to our atmospheres and to our oceans. we aid and abet that harm by subsidizing carbon, distorting the market
thune. senator thune's amendment would repeal the estate tax without any ability to offset it with additional revenue. mr. president, i believe that the estate tax is actually a meaningful part of our tax code and we have put in place appropriate exemptions, $5 million a perpendicular, $10 million a couple. that means the estate tax right now only applies to about 3,800 people a year. yet if we were to repeal the estate tax without any offset, that would add $600 billion to our debt. we spend a lot of time over these last months talking about the dramatic cuts to defense and sequester, $550 billion. repeal of this would cost more. i would urge if you want to repeal the estate tax, pay for it. vote for the warner amendment 693. the presiding officer: who yields time in opposition? a senator: mr. president? the presiding officer: the senator from south dakota. mr. thune: mr. president, i appreciate the effort being made by the senator from virginia. he's moving in the right direction. we do need to get rid of this once and for all. and i'd be happy to accept his amendment by

that there were, in fact, many new taxes, almost a trillion dollars of new taxes in the health care law. and despite the president's firm pledge at that time not to raise taxes by even one dime on middle-class americans, i at that time asked the joint tack committee to evaluate the law and tell us if there were such took in the law. the letter i received back from joint tax indicated there were at least seven taxes in the health care law that did squarely hit the middle class, and not just in a small way. it's about at least a quarter of a trillion dollars of new taxes that the middle class will pay if we don't fix it. in fact, it's 73 million american families that will ultimately pay this new tax in the obamacare legislation if we don't reform it. so this is an amendment i have brought during the consideration of the health care law. it was defeated then by a claim that there were no taxes in the bill. we now know there are took in the bill. this is just our chance now that these taxes are beginning to be implemented to remove them from the law. the presiding officer: the senator's ti
for almost $1 trillion of new taxes. on the spending side, there is a, i think, a relatively modest amount, not adequate but at least there is an amount of health care savings in the amount of $275 billion. but interestingly, that is not in a reconciliation instruction. and so we do not have the protection and assistance of a reconciliation instruction for the entitlement reforms that are in the budget, but we do for the tax increases that are in the budget, which results in this interesting circumstance. the tax increases by this budget would be almost guaranteed -- well, would be guaranteed to occur because the filibuster would be avoided through reconciliation. and the reforms of the entitlement system would be guaranteed not to occur because they would face a 60-vote margin having been kept out of the reconciliation instruction. what this amendment does is put the health care savings of the budget into a reconciliation instruction so we can at least start down the path of dealing with reform of our entitlement system. mrs. murray: madam president? the presiding officer: the senator fro
tax dollars lost to waste, fraud, and abuse. speaking with an iraqi official, special insector, stuart was told, you can fly in a helicopter around baghdad and other cities, but you cannot point a finger to a single project that was built and completed by the united states. mr. speaker, unfortunately these lost opportunities and tragic mistakes are not behind us. as the daughter of a 25-year veteran of the armed forces, i recognize the sacrifices our young men and women have made in iraq and continue to make in afghanistan. i am deeply concerned with the widespread incidences of ptsd and the alarming suicide rates among our returning veterans. we need to honor our troops who served and show our support by giving our o men and women who served the best health care, the best educational opportunities, and the best job available. they deserve nothing less. it is my hope that this reckless and shortsighted decision will mark a turning point in american history and that that we will never again wage an unnecessary war. we must use all the tools of america's power in resolving disputes, incl
about the mayor sporting this new tax focus i know you sent around the memory he but the article sound like i'd love to have informational item on the plans that would be great and also some issues that caltrans and others have with it. >> you had actually promised a diagram mentioned in the article we could physically see the particular size and ramps would be included as to follow up on commissioner anton i's comments. we were the first two commissioners going and the project is still in its final stages and it's an spooirg experience >> this morning there was a letter about 280 and the amount of animals being killed crossing the road. >> yeah. there was a followup meeting i wasn't able to attend west of twin peaks and there's plans to reroute the m line possibly planning to put it underneath 9th avenue which make sense but there were other parts of it i would also like to get anything available as to the nature of their plans and follow-up on it. >> commissioners that's all i'll put you under your director's report. >> thank you good afternoon commissioners and public. as was

's with the administration intent on winding down fannie and freddie, is it your sincere and honest belief that the private market in and of itself this void? especially considering that 90% -- this is a huge void. 90% of all of the new mortgages are done by freddie and fannie. -- i am notng satisfied that we have something that
the open space fund is separate from their operating fund, so the percentage of property tax, the 2.5% goes into the open space fund and that is in addition to anything that the recreation and park department receives in their fees and in general fund allocation for their operating costs. they do use -- >> the open space fund is used for operating as well. >> i was going to say, so the open space fund is used to operate only those facilities that were funded by the open space fund. so, if a park opens up with open space, then the maintenance of that park, the gardeners associated with that park can be funded through the open space fund. okay, and then there's some other services, staffing requirements, these are expenditure baselines, these are requirements that the city spent its money on providing certain types of services, the city services, auditor gets 2/10 of 1% of the city's budget, that amounts to 12 million, the human services agency has a homeless care fund of 13.7 million and that was based on a certain level of funding for homeless services at the time that this was approved. th
and oversight and making sure that the tax dollars are being well spent so i want to encourage you to keep that very firmly in mind. this is a somewhat unique setting. >> i agree wholeheartedly. that's a good point, and it also speaks to commissioner mar's comments about outreach and inclusion in the stakeholder engagement process. if you look at the timeline today is march march 18. we have basically this week to do community engagement which means from the standpoint of scheduling and making it happen that's a very, very aggressive timeline in order to produce a document that you will have to review and approve on the following week, so what i might suggest that we might want to do as part of this process is have some of that community engagement be on-going. the fact that we have a recruitment profile that has been produced does not necessarily impede us from listening to our stakeholders and being able to integrate additional comments into the selection and evaluation part of the process which is equally important as identifying what the key characteristics are, so even though we m
